Fairy Stone: Day 2

Little Mountain Falls
After a yummy breakfast of flapjacks with real maple syrup and chocolate milk, we were well energized for our hike of over three miles. It was late morning when we arrived at the trailhead for Little Mountain Falls Trail.
The hike was longer than we expected, in part because the mileage on the map did not account for the hike from the trailhead to the beginning of that particular trail.
The Little Mountain Falls was little, but since the children hadn't seen a waterfall in close to six years, they were impressed. M and T immediately climbed it.
 The trail went up, up, up. At the peak, we could see Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance. There was a stump cut into a chair, and a bench. In all, we spent about three hours on our hike. This was about twice the time we expected it to take. Thankfully we brought water and a dozen granola bars.

The rest of the day was a blur. I think we went swimming at the lake.
